Valley Japanese Community Center (VJCC) in Sun Valley recently celebrated the installation of a new hardwood floor in the auditorium building.
Over 59 years ago, a generation of Issei and Nisei had a vision to build the foundation for the future, a place where we could share community — a sense of identity from the past and a vision for what could be. The VJCC is one of the oldest community centers with over 200 families dedicated to bringing the community closer together and celebrating our culture.
A floor may be just some pieces of wood, but it marks the beginning of a renewed vision to leave a lasting legacy to the members of the community, their friends, and their children. It’s more than a floor. It’s what we stand on — thanks to the generation ahead that so graciously provided for us…the future.
The auditorium is used for numerous activities, including kendo.
